Hi, I’m Lisa. I am a qualified Counsellor. Each client is unique, I adapt my approaches to suit you.
Working within a outside office environment, you are free to speak without fear or defences in a trusting non-judgemental environment. As we work together, we will explore the challenges that you are facing and find ways to enable you to move forward with a positive future.
Making the decision to seek counselling can feel daunting, please be assured it’s the first step to a positive outcome. Friends and family are great for support, but sometimes we hold back to protect them and ourselves. Seeking a counsellor can really assist you to find the answers within you, the benefits of counselling are you are not alone, that you are heard, and you have the space to explore your feelings and then you are able to process. Talking really does open the mind to feel understood. I will encourage and support you on your journey.
I work full time as a private counsellor, I do support several local care agencies with supporting their staff also, this is due to my care back ground in previous roles.
What to Expect
The first big step is making contact, you can do this via email, phone or text. Once you have made contact, I can give you a brief call if you wish, to answer any questions you may have, then if you are happy to book an appointment we can arrange this. I will then text you to confirm all the details. Its so important that you feel you can connect with you counsellor, and that I have the right experience to help you.
**Please add your contact number in your email enquiry, I reply to all enquiries within 24 hours, please check your spam email if you have not heard from me. **
Counselling- First appointment
The first session is an opportunity for you to paint me a picture, a timeline of events, how this is affecting you, how is it making you feel, how long have you felt this way, who is involved. Are these feelings connected to the past or childhood. This gives me an insight in to your world. This also gives us the chance to gain trust so you feel safe to open up.
The next sessions we can start to unpick why you are feeling the way you are and break it down into easy sections for us to work together with your concerns. For most clients I like to work with fortnightly appointments, but this is something we can discuss, weekly appointments are available, online or face to face.
If you wish to discuss please get in touch or more information please take a look at my website

Some of my experience I have explained below.
Autism/ High Functioning
I have experience working with people and partners who have autism/ high functioning. I find I work effectively with this client base, as in previous roles I worked with clients with Autism and learning difficulties. I feel I have a good understanding of your needs and can work more directly with you so I can support you with the counselling process. I also support the partners to help them understand the difficulties people with autism have with expressing their feelings.
I began training as a counselling after I received bereavement counselling myself, I have always had a passion for bereavement counselling. I feel understanding of the grief cycle assists you in your process.
Domestic / Narcissistic Abuse
Recongising and recovering from abusive relationships, parents or partners, working together to rebuid, and process the affects of controlling relationships, building on self belief, self worth and confidence, working on the loss of self.
Confidence Building Counselling
I have worked with many clients with low self-esteem, self- worth and low confidence. This can bring symptoms of anxiety. Clients find this journey empowering, to explore self and using techniques and strategies can build on their self belief, self worth and feel more confident. We do this by exploring the here and now and your past to explore and process feelings and beliefs.
